Joseph is the son of André Guay and Marie Clarie Blondin. He was born in 1827 as it is confirmed by his baptismal birth record and his death record (sources: Quebec, Vital and Church Records and MN death record collection). His grave stone lists a completely different year.

He married Philomena on 7 May 1861 in Douglas County, Wisconsin. They had 8 children together, five boys and three girls. He was widowed at 54 and never remarried. Joseph later lived with his son Peter, daughter-in-law Della and granddaughter Blanche (source: 1900 US Federal Census).

Joseph is buried next to his son Theodore and his family.
